Re: Relaxing the hips

Ian, I don't know how to interpret what you wote, but if you are implying that Tai Chi is somehow a fairly broad grouping while Aikido is something more specific, then I would counter that Aikido is one of the family of Aikijujutsu/Jujutsu arts, and as such has exactly the same mechanics and building blocks for generating power as this very large family of Japanese martial arts. Does that make sense as seen from your perspective?
